Play video content Michael Rapaport says Donald Trump ripped off his idea for "Sloppy Steve Bannon," claiming he came up with the nickname a year ago ... and he's got the proof. Mike posted a video Sunday in which he slams Trump for allegedly stealing his OG adjective for the former White House Chief Strategist, saying he coined the name "Sloppy Steve" a good 300-something days before 45 started throwing it around this week. He tells Trump, whom he calls "d*** stain Donald," that he's already talking to his real "Jew lawyers" -- unlike Roy Moore's wife's own attorney -- to see if he's got a copyright infringement case against the Prez. Clearly he's joking here ... but it's still funny. … [Read more...] about Michael Rapaport Slams Donald Trump for ‘Stealing’ Nickname Sloppy Steve Bannon

New Delhi: "The death penalty has no place in the 21st century." The quote by UN Secretary General Antnio Guterres seems convincing, but over 50 countries still allow capital punishment and gruesome crimes such as the Nirbhaya gang rape-and-murder case serve as a reminder that the issue of doing away with death penalty is not a settled one. The 50 countries that still allow death penalty include India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria, the US, Iran, Japan, Kuwait, Bangladesh, Iraq, Indonesia and the UAE, according to information in public domain. The US-based Death Penalty Information Center, a non-profit organization, states that there are 146 countries that have totally abolished it in law and practice. India executes criminals only in extreme cases and only 26 executions have taken place in India since 1991, the last being 1993 bomb blast case convict Yakub Memon in 2015. Before that, India had executed 2001 Indian Parliament attack Afzal Guru. Death penalty is in focus in India with … [Read more...] about Death penalty debate in focus again as court considers plea of Nirbhaya convict

NEW DELHI: Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel reported a combined loss of Rs 74,000 crore on Thursday, the biggest ever for both telecom firms, as they made provisions following the recent Supreme Court ruling on adjusted gross revenue (AGR). But shares of Bharti Airtel climbed 9 per cent to hit a high of Rs 395.45 in Mumbai trading early Friday. Brokerages like UBS find Bharti Airtel attractively valued. Edelweiss Securities has even upped its target price on the stock on hopes that Vodafone, being low on Ebitda generation, may get out of competition, if no major measures are taken by the government to solve the AGR issue. In such a scenario, Bharti Airtel will be in a position to take up nearly 40 per cent of the ground ceded by Vodafone Idea in what would become a duopoly. On Thursday, Bharti Airtel made Rs 28,450 crore provisions as the SC recently upheld the government's position on including revenue from non-telecommunication businesses in calculating the annual adjusted gross … [Read more...] about Voda’s pain, Bharti’s gain!

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Spencer Dinwiddie has been on the receiving end of some friendly banter from his Brooklyn teammates, especially Kyrie Irving, over not using his athleticism to rise above the rim. He took the opportunity on Sunday night against the 76ers and former teammate Tobias Harris, scoring 24 points and riling up the Brooklyn bench with an impressive jam on an inbound pass from Garrett Temple, as the Nets went on to beat Philadelphia 109-89. “We showed it again in the locker room in the end and they got a big kick out of that,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. “I don’t think people realize how good an athlete Spencer is. You could argue our best athlete. He’s fast. He’s got an incredible vertical. He’s unbelievable. It doesn’t surprise me. I wish he’d do it more.” "One of our best defensive performances since I've been here." – HC Kenny Atkinson on tonight's victory over the 76ers.#NETSonYES … [Read more...] about Dinwiddie Powers Nets To Big Win Over First-Place Sixers
